We are basking in the Full Moon in Aquarius which was exact yesterday morning at 11:15am PDT. This Full Moon occurred in the very first degree of Aquarius. The energy of any Full Moon lasts while the Moon stays in the sign that the event occurs in. Since it happened at the very first degree of Aquarius, we get today and tomorrow to take advantage of what this energy has to offer. After what we have just come through, the more time we have to take stock the better.
We entered this week as if in an entirely new world. The Grand Water Trine came to a close just one day before this powerful lunation. Full Moons are culmination points. They are that moment each month when we can see the most of what is available to be seen in territory that is normally invisible to us; the Unconscious Mind. This is so important to our effective functioning in the world since so much, in fact the much greater part of who we are, is invisible. The Full Moon gives us an opportunity to take stock, harvest the benefits we have received, and cast off that which is no longer useful. Since we are coming out of such a majestic process these past months, we need this vantage point desperately. Use it wisely.
The I AM Consciousness of the Sun left Cancer and entered his home sign of Leo less than an hour before the Moon moved into Aquarius and opposed him. This changeover of the Sun from the Cancer archetype to Leo was a very abrupt finish to what was truly a magnificent passage. It was as if our Consciousness leapt out of the Water and into the Fire and then danced with the Moon. Even if you still aren’t glimpsing the miracles that have occurred this summer, trust me, they did occur. If you don’t know what the value is yet, by the time Mercury finishes up his direct shadow between now and August 3rd, you will probably have the insight you need to appreciate all that went down since the beginning of June.
This form of the “Grand” Water Trine is indeed over, but the Trine between Neptune and Saturn will be with us for a few more months and Chiron in Pisces enters this picture as well. What this means is that for the rest of the summer, we are experiencing an unprecedented level of access to Divine Consciousness and the miraculous speed of manifestation where thought becomes form in an instant. This is always true, but Saturn in Scorpio means that class is still in session on how to navigate this Truth and the Lord of Kharma is not giving us any wiggle room; he will kick your ass if you are still not taking full responsibility for this power.
What the Grand Water Trine offered was a shift in our Personal Consciousness as it relates to this power. All of the personal planets (the inner ones that represent our individual Self) activated this transit, making the experience of the past two months decidedly, well, personal. This particular Full Moon is very much connected to your outer landscape as Aquarius rules The Community and The Collective. A great theme of this lunation might connect to the idea of taking what you know now and bringing it into your world to do some good with it.
The next few weeks are going to be very process-oriented. If you recall, I made a great deal out of the fact that when all this Cancer energy started that Venus was the first planet to move into that sign to get the ball rolling. Well, she’s at it again in a way by changing signs yesterday too, just as the entire Grand Water Trine came to a completion. You can’t make this stuff up. She has moved into the sign of Virgo and this is a very good thing for us. While she’s not terribly comfortable in this sign, Virgo is the archetype who knows exactly how to process anything. And certainly a LOT has come up in the past two months that will need to be processed over the next few weeks and Venus in Virgo along with Mercury retracing his steps will be very supportive to that end.
My recommendation for today and tomorrow is not ritual based, but more of a ruminative stock-taking. A Full Moon is harvest time, which must include an inventory process. This is very much like the moment at the end of The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy is asked what she has learned. It is so important for her to know what benefit she gained while traipsing around Oz because she now has a responsibility to bring her wisdom back home and share it with her fellow Kansans. This is the same for all of us in this moment. The Grand Water Trine was like a trip through a magical world where many unusual and mysterious things occurred. It is time to take stock of what we have learned so we can share it with the world. Then click your heals three times and be thankful you are, at long last, on solid ground once more.
